    Hello, I am looking for a low-bb mid/short travel rear full susser to pair up with my Pike coils. This looks ideal? Key to me is stable-performance through slow technical sections. Im not very good at any sort of speed. I had a Ellsworth ID previously and the high BB made me feel like I was sat 'on' the bike rather than part of.

    The reviews on the Commencal Meta 5 also worry me - the flex as I am a heavy rider who spends alot of his time over the rear wheel!

    I need a confidence-inspiring frame for a nervous rider to push himself that bit more but with a confident frame.

    Could the XCL be what I am looking for?

    I would say it is ideal for what you describe and would suit your pikes well. The lateral stiffness and stout nature of the bike really suit technical stuff well, you certainly won't feel flex!

    hora, i see you are in the UK? I am the UK distributor for Chumba in the UK and may have a frame that would interest you, drop me a mail at

    Any east coast stops? Snowshoe or Timberline would be nice.
